Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Middle College makeover quite nearly complete

Middle College makeover quite nearly complete

The scaffolding has come down, and Middle College—its cupola in particular—is looking better than ever. As reported in the fall/winter 2011 issue of Beloit College Magazine, the project included removing rotting wood, scraping paint, replacing and cleaning window glass, repairing broken architectural ornaments, and, finally, applying a fresh coat of white paint. The spiffed-up end result cuts a striking figure for anyone coming onto campus from Chapin Street; the project was also finished just in time to play backdrop to the college’s campuswide photo.

The cupola restoration was made possible by a gift from William Corlis’37—you can read more about him here.
